Sandra Robertson Studio OzMosaics
Sandra Robertson - mosaic artist/teacher.
Dave Robertson - Studio/Store Manager.
It’s been mosaics 24/7 for the almost 20 years!
OzMosaics Brisbane studio is filled with mosaic addicts, energy, generosity and fun. Visitors and students are immersed in a treasure-trove mosaic setting, which includes a mosaic B&B.
Sandy creates mosaic masterpieces for private commissions, commercial, gallery, community and public art. Her community projects/mosaic workshops are a testament to her dedication to share the joy of mosaics with people of all ages, at all places.
“OzMosaics has everything for mosaics and I teach you everything you need to know to create mosaics” says Sandy. Her mosaic tips and tricks are plentiful across the mosaic board.
3D and thinset runs in her mosaic veins! Wine bottles are mosaic bounty, as are rusted items and slate. Thrift, dump shops and landscape yards are on the hit list. Sandy loves to create tesserae from the unexpected, combining with Dynasty smalti, glass, ceramic, stone, rock, mirror - whatever takes her mosaic eye. Her mosaic stash is legendary.
Sandy, the China Whisperer, encourages students to “look beyond what you see, rawness, the inside out and the upside down”.
Inspired by nature, travel, Cubism, the outback, her mind’s eye, dreams, people, storytelling and a vivid imagination, Sandy creates unique mosaics.
Her mantra “to go against the mosaic grain” keeps Sandy “on the mosaic edge”, combining modern and ancient mosaic techniques, tools, substrates and materials to great effect.
Mosaic projects are installed at Christmas Is, Norfolk Is, Queen’s Park - Ipswich, Australia Zoo, Hong Kong, Woorabinda, Theodore, University of Queensland, Brisbane City Council, Biloela, Marion Valley, Carseldine, Meandarra and Mundubbera, to name a few. Sandy’s mosaic online school, The Mosaic Guru is under construction.
